Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially speed up the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a signup form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there’re plenty of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser video games or live chat applications, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.
